Pelican Park in Clontarf
Come fly a kite, paddle in the ocean, watch the pelicans or explore the all abilities playground with your Brisbane Kids at beautiful Pelican Park. Make sure you pack your hat and sunscreen as you may stay all day!
Pelican Park – The Fun
This expansive park, located as you exit the bridge into Clontarf, is a winner for locals and tourists alike. There is a stretch of beach, two fenced playgrounds, a bike path, liberty swing, boat ramp and lots of pelicans! With sheltered tables, electric barbeques and a beautiful outlook, it is the ideal location to enjoy a picnic, a barbeque or some takeaway food from nearby cafes.
Playground Number 1
The first playground near the visitor centre is fenced and is close to where the pelican feeding takes place at 10am every single morning. It is also located close to the Liberty swing, boat ramp and sheltered eating area with barbeques.
Playground Number 2
The playgrounds are linked by a narrow internal road and the second playground, like the first, is fully fenced. It also has a sheltered barbeque area that overlooks the playground.
Brisbane Kids will love looking out for the ships offshore, while aboard their own ‘ship’ in one of the playgrounds. Brisbane Kids can also do some pretend or real fishing, and if you don’t catch anything, there’s a fish and chip shop nearby! It’s also a beautiful spot for shell collecting and hunting for pirate treasure!
We love the fact that Brisbane Kids (and adults) of all abilities can relax at this seaside park. Visitors in wheelchairs can swing their way to freedom on the Liberty Swing. A key is required to access it and is available from the tourist information centre located at the main entrance to the park. The park also has accessible toilet facilities, water fountains and picnic tables. There are many paths suited to wheelchair and pram use.
